District 10 Como Community Council

Citywide Drop-Off - Sept. 14, 2024 8am-1pm @ Fairgrounds

The city partners with local district councils to organize annual citywide drop-off events for residents to properly dispose of large refuse items and recyclable materials not collected via the residential recycling program. District 10 helps coordinate the event held annually at the Minnesota State Fair Grounds. You can find information about upcoming drop-off events and volunteering below, and also check here for the latest updates from the city of St. Paul: www.stpaul.gov/drop-offs.
